Glimpses of the Harvard Past.

Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1986. First edition. Trade Cloth over Boards. Octavo, pp. x, 149, illustrated with b/w photos. In this collection of essays, four distinguished members of the Harvard history faculty - Bernard Bailyn, Donald Fleming, Oscar Handlin, and Stephan Thernstrom - offer delightful insights into Harvard's intriguing past. This is not a systematic history of an institution. Instead, the authors provide vignettes that illustrate the character of Harvard, as seen, for example, in the leadership of presidents such as Charles W. Eliot or in the nurturing environment often a product of student attachment to such teachers as Charles W. Townsend or George Santayana. Very Good in Very Good DJ. Item #1316
